Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

I am the great, great niece of Frederick Brown (aka Pte 1284 Charles Mason) and
I feel like shouting from the rooftops that, after a search of almost 30 years, I've
finally discovered where and when he died and where he's buried. If anyone is
interested please let me know.

I suspect he felt there was no point keeping to his alias (Charles Mason) as he wasn't in receipt of an army pension, so he reverted to his birth name (Frederick Brown). He gave his address on leaving the army as the Lion Coffee Tavern in Breacon, although how long he stayed there I don't know. He eventually ended up in Liverpool where, sadly, he was admitted to the Walton Workhouse in 1905 and died in 1918. I've ordered a copy of his death certificate to cofirm his cause of death but I feel it could have been from the Spanish Flu eperdemic of that year. He is buried in the Walton Park cemetery in a communial grave so, unfortunately I can't have a stone erected there.

I wonder if this is related to our man ?
